the nissan leaf is the best selling electric car in america. ♪ following breaking news in the east bay. that's where highway patrol is at the scene anderson varejao hit-and-run accident that involves a child. this is car involved. these are live pictures here from the scene. you see that there is police tape up to keep people away from what is a very intense situation. the child we know was rushed to the hospital. we're trying to figure out how old the child was, was it a little boy, a little girl. the driver left the car at the scene. we understand he was last seen
9:14 am
running away. this scene happening a few blocks way from marshall elementary school. now at this point we don't know if the child is elementary school age. we are working to find that information. but a very intense police investigation. we will get you new developments as soon as we get them here. you and i and mike were talking about the fact that any hit-and-run is terrible. when it involves a child, perhaps s'more. >> yeah. we will let you know more information as soon as it comes? the democratic candidates faced off last night in flint, michigan. they called for the governor resign. >> i believe the governor of this state should understand that his dereliction of duty was irresponsible. he should resign. >> i agree. the governor should resign or be recalled. >> and while the two greed on flint's water crisis, the candidates did trade some harsh
9:15 am
words about the economy. >> he voted against the money that ended up saving the auto industry. i think that is a pretty big difference. >> well, if you are talking about the wall street bailout where some of your friends destroyed this economy -- >> you know -- >> excuse me. i'm talking. >> there you go. the latest polls show hillary clinton with a double-digit lead over senator sanders in tomorrow's michigan primary. >> as for the republicans, florida senator marin declared victory in yesterday's puerto rico primary putting 23 delegates in his column. florida goes to the polls march 15. his victory in puerto rico could resonate with voters this florida where an estimated one million puerto ricans live. >> in an open primary where anyone can vote, not just republicans, democrats and independence, i got over 70% of the vote. not because i became less conservative. but because i took our
9:16 am
conservative principles to people who are living the way i grew up. >> rubio is running a distant third in the race for delegates. after winning kentucky and louisiana on saturday, donald trump has 384 delegates. ted cruz took kansas and maine bringing his total to 300. rubio has half that amount. john kasich just has 37 delegates. >> let's bring in our political analyst. brian, the difference in tone from what we saw yesterday compared to the most recent republican debate. yeah. >> wasn't it refreshing really to listen to the debate last evening and hear these two candidates talking about issues and had a lot of substance to it. >> not about their hand size. >> hand size and all the other stuff that went on. it's just a marked difference between the two debates. you wait for the republicans who have gone through 11 debates now to actually rise to that kind of level of discourse. >> i think it did get heated at times. >> yeah. >> and as senator sanders definitely brought in -- i feel like sometimes he has more
9:17 am
definitive answers to the questions. yes, i'm for this. whereas hillary clinton, well, let's look at the bigger picture every now and then. >> she is doing the same things. bernie sanders says what's on his mind. it's really refreshing. but his command of the facts. his command of history. he knows how often he will reflect on something he voted on years before. but his recollection is really, really acute. >> real quick follow-up to that. michigan, mississippi, idaho, high tomorrow. is it a make or break tomorrow and not march 15 for senator sand centers. >> no. he's got plenty of money. if he does well tomorrow, perhaps. he is going to march ahead and probably march ahead anyway. he has take on his message to the convention and he wants to be a force there even if he doesn't get the nomination. >> what's going to happen with the republicans? are they going to try the hardest not to have trump as the nominee and can they pull it off? >> we are seeing a move now by
9:18 am
cruz that's fairly impressive. he had a good weekend. we will see what happens in michigan, hawaii, other places. he is not terribly far behind in the delegate count at this point. we never know. >> let's talk about the democratic debate and focus an what bernie sanders said if you never lived in ghetto. a lot of people upset. talk about the fact that neither of them seem comfortable talking about race. >> yes. i mean, first of all, hillary clinton, while she has a history of working in the urban communities and that sort of thing still didn't look very comfortable talking about it. and bernie sanders, i think he reflects on growing up poor and marching in the civil rights movement and being arrested, which he pointed out, is also uncomfortable. it's a tough subject for two white negotiation older. one woman, one man.
9:19 am
to identify with the black community. the black inner city community. >> how long does bernie continue this? is he going to stay to june or beyond that? once he gets out, hillary clinton can move to the center and start thwarting the general electorate. >> i don't see bernie going anywhere. he is leading a movement that is a attracting, sal, young people. middle-aged people. older people. you know, if you listen to the kind of the political environment across this country, you see he is resonating with a lot of people. >> what about donald trump over the weekend? he had the backing of maine's governor. he lost maine. i am curious about your thoughts on the effect of mitt romney's speech last week? is that why we saw a split over the weekend and the delegate count as close as it is? >> i think people are waking up to what does a trump nomination mean. and for a lot of republicans, nominating trump means hillary
9:20 am
clinton is the president of the united states. >> did that speech work? >> to some extent. it's been mixed as to how effective it was. but i think had it been somebody else other than romney, who did not do well, it might have had even greater resonance. >> who could that be though? >> you know, some parties -- it doesn't come to mind at moment. maybe a bush. somebody else like that. >> oh, okay. >> former president saying, hey, i am really disturbed. when you talk about the last number any of the republican party coming out and being that harsh, it was remarkable. unprecedented really when you think about it. >> yeah. all right. brian sobel, thanks very much. >> and we have our continuing election coverage right there whenever you want it at ktvu.com. all right. straight ahead, muni officials depending their new fleet of buses after tests show they are having a little bit of troubles with the hills in san francisco. the director of transportation says the new electric buses

9:26 am
by a construction worker in '98 when the home was being torn down. simpson waits acquitted of the stabbing deaths of nicole brown simpson and ron good man and could not be tried again. >> now that police officer says that no one wanted it, but as harvey levin told us on friday, the police department is very, very upset with this officer because they feel that this has made them look really bad. >> i keep thinking about the construction crews there not only during the razing of the property. could it have been one of their knives? >> regardless, whenever you find, anything above a penny for a stick of gum, you hand it over. >> right. >> double jeopardy prevents him from -- i. know. just the -- i know, i know. >> can you imagine if that breaks when we are doing breaking news? it's going to be big.
9:27 am
i am watching "making a murderer." i don't know if you have seen it. >> i did, yeah. >> oh my goodness. all conspiracy. so interesting. my mind is highly tuned to charges we will follow that. coming up on "mornings on 2: the 9", the storms over the weekend changed the landscape of the sierra. next we'll get a report from luke canyon where there is still a winter storm warning in effect. what police are saying about the latest report of a sexual assault near the uc berkeley campus.

9:31 am
from north bay to the south bay. the intense rain was in the santa cruz mountains. that doesn't mean there wasn't as much where you live. there is shower activity, off and on rain. katrina in concord 2.41 for the weekend. other areas though had anywhere from 7 to 11 plus. happened includes boulder -- happened includes boulder creek. cobb mountain up in lake county, by the way, cobb reporting snow at this hour. snow on con ok that and cobb. reports around capitola of some minor flooding as well coming down from so-cal creek. cazadero 7.25. i know petaluma 5. la honda almost 6. calistoga 5 and a third. cupertino 2.80. other locations santa cruz

9:33 am
over the weekend. we have a case to go. >> fantastic. i like it. more rain the better. >> nice having the break. the sierra did get hit pretty hard over the weekend leaving present of fresh snow behind. >> that's right. as brian hickey reports, it's great for the ski areas but tough on drivers. >> reporter: 25 inches of snow in a 12 hour period. that's why they have been here plowing, scraping, and in some cases grating the roadway trying get it back down to the asphalt after that snow accumulated in a short time in the sierra. some of the ski resorts reporting 2 feet of snow at the base elevations. waiting for totals the upper elevations. if you are coming into the surveillance today definitely want to be ready for -- into the sierra today definitely want to be ready for winter weather conditions. the snow continues to come down here in the sierra under this winter storm warning. here at blue canyon at 5,000
9:34 am
feet. take look at this. i came through on friday coming home from skiing. it was pouring rain here. this was all dirt and now 18 inches of snow here on the ground just at the 5,000 foot elevation. significant snow totals in a very short time. again the interstate has re-opened. still gonna need those chains or snow tires goat up over the sierra. they are going that you advise -- you add here to that 30-mile-per-hour speed limited going through the chain controlled areas to get yourself there safely and hopefully keep that roadway open in the sierra. brian hickey, west bay. if you snap a photo from the storm over the weekend share them on our ktvu facebook and instagram or theme using the hashtag #ktvu. download our app. search for ktvu in the app store. a red tag pacifica apartment building sitting on the edge anderson varejao cliff will be
9:35 am
torn down tomorrow. it's at 320 esplanade. a building next door has been torn down. crews will put up a fence and take out ab bess osu and lead. tomorrow morning work will begin to demolish the building. technicians will keep a close eye on the cliffside. >> if there is any movement of the bluff and he'll be able to warn us and make sure that the contractors, including the staff, are safe. >> according to "the chronicle," the city of pacifica filed a criminal complaint last year against the building's owner accusing him of neglect. he was put on probation for three years and later filed for bankruptcy protection. the demolition is estimated to cost $200,000. the city is picking up the tab, but hopes to eventually recover those costs from the owner. a third building owned by the same man was yellow tagged in january and may be the next building to be torn down. over to the east bay now where police are investigating another sexual assault that
9:36 am
happened near the uc berkeley campus over the weekend. >> we reported on similar attacks in recent weeks. ktvu's alary rasmus is outside the berkeley police department. >> reporter: we just got an update from berkeley police about five minutes ago. the public information officer here confirms there have been four sexual assaults that have happened in the south campus area. not on campus, but off campus. south of the campus in the span of less than month. and she says investigators are fairly confident that the same man may be behind all four attacks. now, here is a map of the four attacks we are talking about. the first sexual assault happened on february 11th near the intersection of haste and telegraph. then five days later on the same evening two of them happened. february 16. one at durant and ellsworth and another at benvenue and dwight. the most recent sexual assault just this past saturday annette that between dwight and park e early saturday morning between
9:37 am
midnight and 1 a.m. police say a man grabbed a 21-year-old woman from behind. the victim fought back. she fought back hard. she screamed and the man took off running down street. police hope anyone who heard that commotion will -- who may have seen the man running away will give police a call and help them with this investigation. over the weekend berkeley police released again this surveillance video of a possible suspect in all four cases. the video is captured after one of the february sexual assaults. so it's a few weeks old. but police again believe the man seen here may be connected to the sexual assault that happened most recently on saturday. now, the description of the suspects in these four cases vary somewhat. again police believe the same man is behind all of the attacks. >> one of the things that is very similar is the pattern of attack. so in each case our victims are walking alone, in darker areas,
9:38 am
you know, alone and then the, you know, the suspect's running up from behind them and basically, you know, grabbing them and then at that point knocking them to the ground or physically holding on to them. in each case re believe they are connected based on the pattern of attack and how he is approaching these women. >> reporter: now, the description that victim gave in the most recent sexual assault, the one that happened on saturday, she said was a man in his 20s, possibly early 30s. he had hair. he had kind of a scruffy look. unshaven. while it's not the most clear description, they hope by putting out that surveillance video someone will recognize that man or someone will have heard something that happened over the weekend and give them a call. >> allie, did the police department say anything about stepping up patrols, special foot patrols in those areas? >> reporter: well, they did say that any time anyone in that area or anyone to begin with
9:39 am
notices anything suspicious out of the ordinary, police are certainly aware that this has been a string of attacks and they want to get to the bottom of this. they said if anyone notices anything unusual, don't hesitate to give them a call. they put out the warning to the victims -- the victims are young women in their 20s. they should definitely avoid walking alone. these attacks have happened in the early/late evening. say between 9 and midnight. not during the overnight hours, but late enough to where if people are maybe thinking of heading out or going to a friend's house and they are by themselves, coming home from class, contact someone to help them, escort them where they are going to be safe. >> allie, thank you very much. back to breaking news we brought you a few minutes ago in castro valley. officers may have located the hit-and-run suspect. he may have been holed up in a storage shed near the area where a child was hit by a car. these are live pictures.

a number of highway patrol officers and vehicles on the scene. the hit-and-run happened 8:00 in castro valley on meadow view drive and marshall street. a child was rushed to the hospital. no word yet on how old the child is, if it's a little boy, a little girl, an older child. the driver left the car at the scene and was seen running away. we brought you pictures of the car slammed into a pole. at this point police say they may have found or cornered the suspect who is holed up in a storage area. we will stay on top of this story and bring you more developments as we get them. cal advance service is up and running after a man was hit and killed last night. caltrain officials say it happened around 8:00 near the santa claracation. investigators held the train for an hour while they looked into the fatality. so far no details on the victim's name or how he ended up on the tracks. there are now eight known cases of the zika virus in california and half of them are here in the bay area. experts say it's really just a matter of time before more
9:41 am
cases surface. that's why ucff is holding a symposium on the zika virus today. ktvu's tara moriarty live from the mission bay campus with more on what to expect. tara. >> reporter: well, although the risk of zika virus transmission is low here in the bay area, there are still people traveling to countries where mosquitoes are carrying the virus. that includes central and south america as well as the caribbean. the mosquito-borne virus can cause a rare birth defect that results in an abnormally small head and also an immune deficiency disorder. one of the bay area victims is a pregnant woman in napa county. so her baby is at risk. contra costa county has two reported cases. san francisco one. now, in this symposium today they will host medical experts from here, uc berkeley, uc davis, stanford as well as the california department of public health. they are going to be talking about the risks of transmission, mosquito control, and the safety of the blood supply as well as potential complications of infection. this virus is primarily
9:42 am
